COVID-19 continues to wreak havoc upon the globe. Most of the world continues to operate with only essential businesses remaining open. Grocery stores remain open, but many people are opting to have their groceries delivered amid the pandemic.
Not only does having groceries delivered save time, but it can help to eliminate potentially harmful germs. If you are looking to have your groceries delivered, here are six stores and methods to consider.
1) Whole Foods
If you are a committed Whole Foods shopper, you’re in luck – they deliver.
Whole Foods is a great option for urban and organic shoppers. While their groceries tend to be more expensive, they are high quality and may be worth it if you’re dedicated to a holistic lifestyle.
You can call your local Whole Foods to see if they can set up delivery. Further, since Whole Foods is now owned by Amazon, if you are an Amazon Prime member, you can get free 2-hour delivery. Not too shabby!
2) Amazon Fresh
Speaking of Amazon, if you are a Prime Member, you can also get free grocery delivery through Amazon Fresh.
Keep in mind, Amazon’s delivery is currently completely booked. Check back often to see if they have open slots for delivery in your area.
3) Regional Grocery Store Chains
Depending on where you live, your nearest regional grocery store may offer delivery for a small fee.
Some grocery stores that are offering delivery include:
- Harris Teeter
Not all stores in a chain deliver, so be sure to check out your local store online to see if they provide such a service.
Have a favorite local grocery store? If your local shop doesn’t offer delivery, then check out Instacart.
Instacart is a third-party app that delivers groceries in as little as one hour. With Instacart, independent contractors can sign up to shop for and deliver your groceries. Think of it as a ride-sharing service, but for groceries.

That’s right, your favorite budget-friendly grocery store now delivers. And not only is Aldi affordable, but it is based in many cities and rural communities. To sweeten the deal even further, you can get free delivery on your first three orders of $35 or more.
You can order groceries online through Aldi’s website. Once you checkout, your groceries will be delivered by an Instacart employee.
